PACIFIC NORTHWEST ANIMATION: IN TUNE
Date: Sunday, September 11th
Venue: Grand Hall
Time: 4:00 pm
The Pacific Northwest of the United States, comprising primarily the states of Washington and Oregon, has a rich history of independent animation as well as exciting work being made today. But this talent has often been overshadowed by the commercial animation or live-action film industries. Haptic Animation Amplifier is a new non-profit that aims to preserve and promote indie animation from the PNW. This program scratches the surface of the exciting, creative and diverse independent animation that comes out of this region, and focuses on films that reflect our relationship with music and nature.
